Mirjana On Grass in 2016: A Veteran Fights Onward

Well, we all love Miki and know that she's playing some strong tennis. Grass is a mighty surface for her, when confident, and her big game seems more poised than ever to produce results.

From RICOH to Wimbledon, let's hope this lovely lady can bring the magic and the moxie.

Best of luck, Mirjana! You're a champion forever and you keep proving that excellent things can be done on the court ...

Well she has been a ton more consistent this year, which is saying a lot. Grass *should* be a really great time of the season for her. It would be great if she had some serious results and was able to boost that ranking well into the top 50

Bouchard is looking very weak so far.

Mirjana is due for a good grass court season. She really hasn't had a really good one since 2013.

Ok, Bouchard went down in flames

Now, Bertens needs to withdraw so Miki can play LL and (Q) in first two rounds

Interesting game from Mertens, very effective on grass. Bouchard was really bad, though.

Mirjana will surely play R1 on Wednesday since Bertens will only tomorrow confirm if she will actually play.

Yeah, that sucks Miki has to wait around while "Queen" Bertens calls the shots. Of course, being the home player and just making the French SF, the tournament will, naturally, bend over backwards for her.

I'm sure she doesn't want to be playing since competing in the mud last week must have been tremendously exhausting. Even grass goat Pironkova withdrew from Nottingham after going deep in Paris. If they do play I think it will be winnable for Miki.

It'll be LL Krunic tomorrow. First up on court 6. Miki should beat Aleks on this surface, but I'm so nervous now that the draw is open

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Didn't she lose to her 3-6 7-6 6-0 after serving for the match last year ?

Yes...

But Krunic was in much better form and that was on clay.

Re: Mirjana On Grass in 2016: A Veteran Fights Onward

Draw is very open, even to go all the way. But Mirjana tends to f*** up when draw is open so..
Krunic is out of form, but she has been able to get to known Miki lately and she is the type of player Mirjana has struggled against in past.
Also, Aleks is just as unstable as Miki. She owned Kvitova at US Open few years ago and made it to week 2. This year she lost on clay to Sevastova 06 06 and then beat her next week 63 62(and Makarova 62 62).

With all that said, Mirjana is now favorite to make it to SF from that quarter.
